His success on Instagram (with over 320K followers) has lead him to be featured on BBC recently
His videos are exclusively on his Instagram page, which he says in an interview with Pulse Africa is because he has always used Instagram videos, ever since it was introduced in 2013, and as since it was popular then, and still is, he has no reason to use any other platform, especially considering his fan base which originated here. However, when his ideas are bigger than 15 seconds, he will edit longer versions on his Facebook and YouTube pages.
With his relatable and funny reenactments of African parents and their traditional behaviours, we don’t see why he won’t get bigger and better this year alone. Follow his Instagram from new daily and weekly content HERE
